Brace yourselves, 'Avengers: Endgame' longest MCU film yet
MANILA, Philippines – If you're just as psyched as we are for Avengers: Endgame, we suggest prepping your bladders ASAP, because we're all in for a long Marvel ride – specifically, a 3-hour one, with no intermissions.
According to IGN, the official running time of the highly-awaited Avengers film is reportedly at 3 hours and 2 minutes, making it the longest blockbuster film ever in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's 11-year film history. Avengers: Infinity War clocked in at 2 hours and 40 minutes.
Last February 5, the Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo teased that the running time of the latest MCU film was at 3 hours then in an interview with Collider.
"This is a culmination film of 22 movies, it's a lot of storytelling to work into it," the pair said.
"Emotion is an intrinsic part of that to us. When you have to tell a really complicated story and you want strong emotional moments with the characters, it just requires a certain amount of real estate. This one, in particular, feels like 3 hours worth of real estate."
And on the topic of possible bathroom breaks? "For the first 3 screenings, not a single person got up to go to the bathroom," the Russo brothers said.
The super-hyped blockbuster is set for an April 26 US release. – Rappler.com
